UPDATE: Contest deadline extended until July 15th!

Get outside to enjoy the great outdoors and the New Mexico State Parks this summer! Hyde Memorial State Park and a few others are currently closed until further notice due to extreme fire danger. We are hopeful they will reopen soon and previous photos taken at these parks are eligible for this contest. Please check the individual Park pages for the latest Park status information on the New Mexico State Parks website here before you plan your trip.
